Crop Update

Reports are coming in about the post winter condition of the crops and the news is essentially good for central, western and southern regions.

Still waiting for updates from eastern Ukraine where we might see higher levels of winter kill as low levels of snow failed to provide sufficient insulation.

We have not seen the same climatic conditions as we did last year when we saw a thaw in February which allowed melt water to pool and then re-freeze killing plants.

More detailed reports to follow as we get a better look at the emerging crops.
